Meditation 101 – Six Tips to Start a Meditation Practice

For years “meditate” was on the top of my New Year’s intentions list. I would go into the new year full of fire and start a practice whole heartedly but somewhere over the course of the year the commitment would fade.

For years “meditate” was on the top of my New Year’s intentions list. I would go into the new year full of fire and start a practice whole heartedly but somewhere over the course of the year the commitment would fade. I knew meditation was good for me and that it could do wonders for my mind, body, and spirit. And, although I deeply desired having a daily meditation practice and read countless books on how to meditate, it took me years of having an on again off again practice to fully incorporate meditation into my daily routine.

Left Coast/Right Coast: Our son came “home” this week

This is the time of year when you should be with family. At one point we were scattered around the country. My wife and I in Boca Raton, Florida; our youngest son in Boston; our oldest son in Los Angeles; and our daughter in Seattle.

This is the time of year when you should be with family. Our oldest son came for a visit this past week. Flew in from Los Angeles. Our daughter and our granddaughters live in Ballard. So we get to see our grandchildren often. In fact it is the reason we relocated from the east coast to Seattle. Our son got to spend some “quality” time with his nieces. It was so nice to see him interact with the next generation. Every time I see our oldest son I think of the lyrics to Cats in the Cradle written by Harry Chapin.
